Weekend / Progress

May 7, 2018

Ballet friends
(Annabel is ready to quit after this year so needed to snag the pix now.  She is the taller one in the shorts.)

Agh, this published before I was ready!  More later.  But it was a good weekend thanks to:

A) help from childcare (Josh was on call).  I had help 10-6 Saturday and 12-6 Sunday, mostly to do things w 1-2 of the 3.  I did take a walk with a friend but otherwise it wasn’t for a break/me time – it was to keep things going smoothly with all 3 and Josh at work.  It definitely made things much more manageable.  Did I “need” it?  Maybe not, but quality of life was definitely enhanced.  Worth it.
B) Happy G.  When she’s happy … I’m happy.  I have quit the 5am pump, officially.  She still seems to breastfeed just fine.  At peace for now.
C) Deciding that I’m DONE with the martyr role and I’m going to do what makes life feel right, right now.  See A) and B)

Really happy!  And looks well fed to me ….

Poor C in the background.  He was sick and I’m finding him in this background position too often.  A post on this to come.  I need some more Cameron time.


Just omg.

    So glad you’re feeling better about things! The kids sound like they’re doing great, you sound happier, and those rolls on G are adorable! I feel like I don’t make loads of milk (like you, I don’t really leak milk or ever feel super full and pumping is a slow and not particularly productive process) but I’m convinced what does come out is basically ice cream as baby continues to gain weight well. I make enough each day to feed him and have one day spare in the freezer.

    Love following your posts Sarah! I had my 2nd baby just 3 weeks after you and am finding such solidarity with you and your posts. I am huge fan of the podcast. Keep up the great work. One day at time. (or hour by hour…)
